Join Greenberg Traurig for a Courageous Conversation: W. E. B. Du Bois: Agent of Change – His Relevance Today on September 30, 2021 at 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET. 

W. E. B. Du Bois (1868-1963) was an American civil rights activist, sociologist, historian, Pan-Africanist, author, and editor, and a founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.

His work continues to impact us today. Please join us for the first in a series of roundtable discussions about Dr. Du Bois and his relevance today hosted by his great grandson Arthur McFarlane II. Get to know the historical icon, the legend and the day-to-day man, why he is such an important historical figure, and his influences along the way.

This special program will touch on how you can also be an agent of change.
